My comment in response to an article entitled, “Foreign Policy Debate? Let’s Check In On Obama’s ‘Atrocities Prevention Board’” at PJMedia by David Steinberg.
Let’s assume for the moment that this is on the up-and-up. I know. Still, if I were to assume this info is “good” then I have to ask, what do they know that I do not?
Look at the titles! “Atrocities Prevention Board”. “Assistant Secretary of State for Conflict and Stabilization Operations”. “Ambassador-at-Large for Global Criminal Justice”. “Assistant Secretary, Bureau of International Organization Affairs”.
I don’t know about you, folks, but those titles scare the crap outta me. Seriously. Look at what they’re hinting at: a global criminal justice system as a cog in an organized international bureaucracy that reports to the executive branch. Again, this time with the appropriate title in square brackets, “[ ]“:
A global criminal justice system [Ambassador-at-Large for Global Criminal Justice”] as a cog in an organized international bureaucracy [Bureau of International Organization Affairs] that takes orders from the executive branch [Assistant Secretary of State for Conflict and Stabilization Operations. All in some weird way contributing to an effort to prevent some kind of global atrocity [Atrocities Prevention Board]. And, presumably, skipping any Congressional oversight.
Hillary Clinton: “But the fact is a body such as this can drive the kinds of institutional changes that we envision.”
This is bad.
